    Ford Teases Mid-Sized Electric Crossover For Europe

through Michael Gauthier

Ford has given us the first revealing look at an upcoming electric car for Europe.

In a tweet, the general manager of Ford Model e Europe turned the sheet on the “first electric passenger vehicle” to be built in Cologne, Germany.

Although the model won’t arrive until 2023, Ford originally teased the vehicle earlier this year and said it would be a “medium-sized” electric crossover. It will be joined by a second electric vehicle in 2024, billed as a “sport crossover.”

There’s not much to see, but the mid-sized crossover features a curvaceous front bumper with vertical air curtains and what appears to be a fully enclosed central intake. We can also see the headlights, which feature L-shaped daytime running lights.

Elsewhere, the crossover is equipped with plastic body cladding and aerodynamically optimized wheels. They are joined by a contrasting silver accent on the front bumper, which is likely designed to recall a skid plate. The rest of the crossover is covered by a sheet, but we can see a sloping roof and what appears to be a pronounced shoulder line.

Little is known about the model at this point, but officials have previously said the vehicle will build on Ford’s “proud heritage and success in the popular sport utility and crossover segments.” The model also promises to be “highly differentiated” and “set new benchmarks for zero emissions mobility.”

As we previously reported, Ford is preparing a variety of electric vehicles for Europe including a Puma EV. If all goes according to plan, the company will sell more than 600,000 EVs annually in Europe by 2026.
